Well I just got off the phone with my buddy Al, talking flies and fishing and getting way to excited for the next time we hit the water together. Al is another person that I've met fishing and now I consider him a good friend and a hell of a fishing buddy!! We are heading to West Virginia at the end of May and it's planning and tying up until "D Day".  So I made it to the water on Friday and hooked up on two Steelhead and a bevy of mid range browns. I was throwing streamers mainly and big streamers to boot! I hooked up both steel on Galloups "Sex Dungeon" and a few more tugs off the "Circus Peanut". They were rolling and rising all over and I did see a couple Blue winged Olives but the box I was carrying did not have  alot to match...and so it was back to the streamers and to a tired right arm! I did pick up a rod last season that I liked so much I bought a matching one this winter..Okuma's SLV 9ft 5wt 4pc, LOVE IT! Matched it with the Okuma SLV 4/5 reel and I am more than pleased. So now we are getting ready for the MI trout opener and can't wait to get back in the water that has been closed for the season. There are some very nice places to fish all within an hour of my home and I cant wait to hit them all....

Check this rod out,,,Reasonably priced and a very smooth combo!
